He was preceded in death by his parents, Doyle Leroy Fike and Dorothy Elaine Evans Fike.

Mr. Fike was a retired tire builder with Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. He was a veteran, U.S. Army.

dj and I met on a motorcycle forum, and we admittedly had a roller coaster of a ride on there.

His recollection of some of the group rides back east, I took them as gospel. A few others, well, let's just say they saw and remembered what they wanted too. And that made for some heated discussions.

Many years ago, a ride was coordinated in the midwest, and dj made the trip, even though he was about a dozen hours to ride to get there.

He never whined about anything, he did what he said he would do, he was "the real deal" and will be remembered as such.

The man could ride, and one of the greatest compliments I ever had came from him. On the mentioned ride, I was on a beater of a GL500. We were riding hard, and after one stretch, Doyle complimented my ability to ride.

May not of been true, may not of applied, but it made me feel good, and who can put a price on another human making another feel good?

Priceless IMO, Godspeed DJ, you're remembered.

Ride for one - Ride for all
